Young Adult Book Club

  • The Green Toad Bookstore 198 Main Street Oneonta, NY, 13820 United States (map)

Join us for the first meeting of our Young Adult Book Club! Teenagers, adults, and everyone in between is welcome.

We will be discussing the book, 'The Hate U Give' by Angie Thomas.
Pick up a discounted copy of the book at the Green Toad Bookstore, and read a review on it below:

"'They finally put a sheet over Khalil. He can’t breathe under it. I can’t breathe.' The last words of Eric Garner, adopted and amplified by the Black Lives Matter movement, echo again in the early pages of Angie Thomas’s young-adult novel The Hate U Give. By the time she’s 16, Starr Carter, the protagonist of the book, has lost two of her childhood friends to gun violence: one by a gang drive-by, and one by a cop."
